An abandoned driving school in Myohoji

As Japan’s population ages, so the need for housing falls. It’s led to countless houses being left abandoned across the country, and innovative programmes to encourage people to buy them.

It isn’t only houses being left to nature. This is a driving school not far from where I live. As far as I can tell it’s abandoned.

Maybe people don’t need to learn to drive anymore.
